"Brilliant...In their terrific, accessible, and thoughtful new book, To End a Presidency: The Power of Impeachment, the Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe and the constitutional lawyer Joshua Matz do better than offering a simple yes or no: they give us a framework for thinking about the question...To their great credit, Tribe and Matz didn't write a legal brief or a political strategy memo. They instead make clear to anyone even contemplating impeachment that the decision to end a presidency isn't simple or straightforward."―Guardian US
"A learned, judicious, and surprisingly cautious study of the impeachment power...The clear-eyed and clear-thinking message of To End a Presidency deserves the widest audience. It is an aspirin to cool a political fever, and a hopeful summons to defend an imperiled democracy with a renewed and enlarged commitment to democratic action."―Atlantic
"Mr. Tribe and Mr. Matz have written a powerful, clear and even-handed guide to the legal and political aspects of impeachment...[an] enlightening book. It is the definitive treatment of a vital subject and will remain so long after this presidency."―Economist
"The most important book on impeachment in decades."―Jennifer Rubin, Washington Post "Right Turn"
"With wisdom and lucidity, they explain the origins of impeachment in the U.S. Constitution, exactly how it works, and what criteria should be used in evaluating whether impeachment is called for."―Washington Times
"A comprehensive, restrained, and indispensable resource on the powers and limits of impeachment... an eminently comprehensible, thorough legal, historical, and political text, a must-read guide for navigating the choppy and turbulent waters facing President Trump and the country in the days ahead."―Jewish Week
"Tribe and Matz provide a fair, balanced, and relevant examination of an often misunderstood function of our national government."―Booklist
"Impeachment is a fearsome power. This bracing, restrained, and fiercely judicious account of the process's origins and purpose explains why no U.S. president has ever been removed from office by impeachment, and what it might mean if one were."―Jill Lepore, author of the forthcoming These Truths: A History of the United States
"'Impeachment is neither a magic wand nor a doomsday device.' So write Laurence Tribe and Joshua Matz in this deeply informed, even-handed look at how a president can be impeached and what the consequences would be. This book is essential reading for anyone who cares about the future of our democracy in the Age of Trump."―Max Boot, senior fellow, Council on Foreign Relations, and bestselling author of The Road Not Taken
"Very few books are accessible to a wide audience of lay people and experts, written compellingly and reading easily, while also having depth, insight, and deep scholarship. To End a Presidency is one of the rare ones. Laurence Tribe and Joshua Matz have given us a thorough, lively history of presidential impeachment, enriched with strong legal and political analysis, fair-minded and thoughtful without being bland. This is an important, timely, and extraordinarily useful book at a critical time in American politics."―Norman Ornstein, resident scholar, American Enterprise Institute, and bestselling coauthor of One Nation After Trump: A Guide for the Perplexed, the Disillusioned, the Desperate, and the Not-Yet-Deported
